Work With Me
I work with athletes of all abilities and ages to help them improve their performance through a
“I began working with Invigor8 Coaching early in 2018 with the goal to build strength. My fitness journey had been going along nicely by setting and achieving goals in the past few years culminating in running the Chevron Houston Marathon in January.
Mark was able to get me back on track by asking specific and targeted questions on what I wanted to achieve and accomplish next. Through the past several years, I had focused on running and endurance and really let my power and strength dissipate.
Mark took a strong interest in my goals and we set about a plan to achieve them. Over the next 12 weeks, I was able to see my lifts get bigger, my energy level increase and some of the mental constraints that I had subconsciously placed on myself disappear. For the first time in years, I found myself looking forward to going to the gym and seeing what I was truly capable of.
Invigor8 is not your average “coach”. There isn’t just the “Good Job” and “Atta Boys” that we all come to expect, but more of an analytical approach to fitness. Encouragement is part of the journey, but when you need to have numbers and analytics to motivate you, Invigor8 is a great step in your overall health journey!”
“It has been four months since my twelve week session with Mark.
“Working with Mark at Invigor8 was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. He created a programme tailored to me and worked through several techniques to help optimise the results, changing tack when I was struggling to engage with my goals and really focusing on my motivating factors and understanding what makes me tick. This certainly wasn’t coaching by numbers!
I recently did a VO2 Max test with Mark, the owner, of Invigor8 coaching and it was absolutely fascinating! Mark is clearly an effective and motivating coach, but what makes this company so competitive is the science Mark uses to show his clients what is happening to their body and muscles during physical activities at various levels.
He really goes above and beyond to explain how best to train for my specific goals. For me, I’m working on endurance, and Mark was able to explain to me where my body currently is most efficient. I’m looking forward to following his suggestions and doing this test again in a few months to see my progress! Highly recommend for anyone doing an endurance race!!
“Signing up with Mark as my health coach was the best thing I ever did!! He inspired and motivated me to be the best version of myself just when I needed it most.
I was planning my wedding at the same time as looking after my two small children. Mark helped me to work out ways I could improve my fitness and wellbeing to get in to the best shape to be a bride!
He also worked on relaxation techniques with me, which have proved so valuable in my daily life. Mark helped me to get a fresh perspective on how I do things.
Mark has a wealth of knowledge in his field and always made me feel at ease. I feel like I can achieve anything with Mark as my coach guiding me through and helping me overcome any challenges or obstacles along the way.
Thank you Mark! I had the dream wedding day and can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
“After pacing my workouts based on self-assessed effort for years, I really enjoyed getting VO2 performance testing done through Mark!
Mark spent a lot of time explaining the theory behind each test and he summarized all data collected in a straightforward easy-to-understand report.
I received well-defined heart rate zones to target, pace recommendations, and some great training suggestions to improve my metrics.
Aside from being incredibly helpful and friendly during the testing, Mark made himself readily available to clarify any questions as they came up after the tests were complete.
All-in-all a great experience to get information about my own performance that I had been wondering about for years! “
“Invigor8 coaching gave me the tools and techniques to stay motivated in my exercise regimen and be more aware and mindful in managing my stress to help with fat metabolism.
I needed to slow down and clean up my diet to shift excess weight and get lean. Mark was very helpful and encouraging during our time together, and helped me challenged myself to push through my weight-loss plateau.
My relationship with food improved and I learned many techniques to maintain a healthy (fit & social) balance. I feel better, less stressed and have more energy to keep up with working full-time and balancing my busy lifestyle and looking after my kids, family and career.
I also got my metabolism tested by Mark and learned how many specific calories my body needs (on workout and rest days) to lose weight which helped me to lose a significant amount of weight and inches! No more guessing.”
“I started working with Mark of Invigor8 coaching over the course of 3 months or so to help me lose weight however we ended up working on so much more in other areas of my life.
Thanks to Mark’s friendly and supportive demeanor I learned to be more mindful when it came to managing my stress level and how that was connected to my bodies ability to burn fat.
I also learned what activities gave me energy and what drained me so this allowed me to plug the energy drains and spend more time recharging myself so that I could be more fully present and engaged with my family and friends.
This inspired me to set stronger boundaries in my life and stop doing things that I only did out of guilt and this gave me more energy to do the things I enjoyed doing. I was much happier and less stressed as a result of this.
Mark held me accountable each week to make healthier food choices and meal prep more often so I wasn’t tempted to make poor choices when I was hungry. We even went running together and I was inspired to push myself harder than I usually do!
Mark gave me simple tools and strategies that I used daily to keep me motivated and stay on track. I’m happy to report that I lost 5lbs and I lost inches and body fat! I recommend Invigor8 coaching to anyone looking to lose weight, tone up and get healthy! ”
